I have a Schengen visa valid until the 8th of July and I want to apply for a visa from the 12th of July is that possible or would they refuse it?


It is possible.

  • Generally speaking, any short, successful visit (no overstays, no incidents) will increase the chances that you will get another one.
  • If you apply for a long visit directly after a previous one, that decreases your chances since there are fewer ties to your home country. The 90/180 rule would apply to any combination of C visa, too.
  • You are supposed to apply from your place of residence, and time might be short to get things done before July 12th.
  • thank you very much, do you think if i apply tommorro as i have everything required will be enough to get it ? – rwayda shry Jun 19 '17 at 17:24
  • I can't possibly know, that depends on your nationality, place of residence, and what they have in their files. However, 16 working days is very little time for a visa. – o.m. Jun 19 '17 at 17:49
